So, the spookiest day of the year is creeping up on us, and what better day to get together with the friends and family for a bit of fun and banter! So, if you’re too old to be knocking on strangers’ doors with a sweet tooth, I’ve explored the corners, streets and alleyways of the country to find out what your options are! ;)
Spooky Streets of Ireland!
We’ll kick things off with the capital then shall we!?
This year, get yourself down to the Ely bar & brasserie at IFCI for an exciting Halloween House Party. You’ll get to enjoy music, food, drinks, and even a craft beer table, spiced up with a selection of pumpkin and seasonal beers :)
You can dig into some pumpkin pies, sweets, turkey legs… a whole variety of food while you mingle, dance, scare, and just enjoy one of the best parts of town. Make sure you dress up… there will be prizes for the scariest costume, most original costume, and plenty of others!
If you’re more drawn towards the south of the country, why not try something in Limerick citaaaayy! Get out to ‘Limerick Spooktacular’ family festival.
This is hosted at Arthur’s Quay, along the banks of the river Shannon. Enjoy the attractions, yummy authentic international food, a vintage carnival where if you dare to hang 100 feet in the air, you may just have a buzzing time! And there’ll also be a spooky show with some of the scariest characters for you to get into the spooky mood :) Find Hotels in Limerick
I believe Wexford have got a bit of something up their sleeve this year as well!?
Taking advantage of what is known as Ireland’s scariest house… yep, that’s the one… Loftus House. You can head on a tour of the house and just get scared out of your wits essentially!
Don’t worry though, there are different tours for different age groups, so if you do chicken out, you can always “take the kids”! :)
Saving the best till last so we are! Back for another year, we absolutely urge you to get yourself down to ‘Spirits of Meath Halloween Festival’.
Halloween actually began in Meath over 2,000 years ago, and so as you can imagine, this festival re-creates that very first Halloween, with many traditional activities and celebrations, such as torchlit procession.
There’s a choice of a children’s ‘Fun By Day’ event of an adult’s ‘Frights by Night’… i think you know the one you need to get to! ;) If you’re gonna do it, do it right!
